Regional and National Implementation and Coordination of ME Design

The purpose of the peer exchanges and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) National Users Group meeting is to support State Department of Transportation (DOT) and Canadian province implementation of mechanistic empirical (ME) Design procedures by (1) sharing information between, (2) identifying issues at the local/regional level with regard to implementation, (3) identifying needs or areas that still need to be researched relative to the Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG), and (4) organizing implementation efforts on a regional and National basis. The four peer exchanges will be limited to participation by governmental agencies, while the AASHTO Users group meeting will be open to industry representatives, academics, consultants, and others interested in ME Design. Funds from this pooled fund will only be used to support contributing agency travel and development activities. The peer exchanges and AASHTO National Users Group meeting will focus primarily on the efforts related to the AASHTO MEPDG and related Pavement ME Design™ software. However, all agencies are welcome to participate in the pooled fund; as most topics covered are fundamental and applicable to all ME design procedures and pavement design in general.
